Trey:
I set it at 2 7/8" to 3" back from the leading edge.

It was a rather warm day, temp was 99 - 100 degrees.
No mid-airs, only carnage was me: cartwheeled a new plane
on test flight. Thanks for the loaner to fly, Dave.
Next race is in September. Will post a definite date when
available.
We hope to have the Judgeman system ready by the next
race.
Had a great turnout of workers for this race. Thanks
to all as we can not race without you.
